Bike Safety Tips

Cycling in Spruce Grove is a popular way to stay active, get around the city and enjoy various amenities in our community, including more than 40 kilometres of all-weather trails. But before you head out, remember to use the following tips to help keep you safe while you ride.

Gear up!

All children under 18 years of age must wear a helmet. Ensure the helmet fits properly. Wear bright clothing and reflective gear so drivers can see you better.

Cross with caution!

Cross the street at crosswalks or corners. Always look left and right before entering traffic, roadways, driveways, sidewalks, alleys and parking lots.

Be ready to ride!

Make sure your tires are inflated, seat is secure and that your bell and brakes are working. Clean and oil your bike chain, and place reflectors on the front/rear of the bike and both pedals.
